A Significant Home in a Fairy Tale Setting .... with the most spectacular outdoor spaces and swimming pool anyone could wish for! The pool is ready for family fun and entertaining -- no two-year wait needed to build one! -- and the privacy abounds, even though you are within easy walking distance to everything that makes the Village of Lake Bluff so special, like Sunday Bluffinia Concerts on the Village Green, summertime Block Parties, the famed Lake Bluff Fourth of July Parade, the Criterium Bike Race, Halloween Happenings and so much more fun year-round! Located only minutes from Lake Forest High School, on a secluded cul de sac, only 2 homes from Lake Michigan, this stunning English Country home appears to have been there for generations. Perfectly set on its spectacular 1.4-acre ravine property, it's a rare find in the heart of East Lake Bluff! Thoughtfully and artistically envisioned by its current owners and custom-designed and built by noted architect and builder Rick Swanson in 2001, it embodies the best of all worlds: the classicism and craftsmanship of an older North Shore estate, combined with the modern technology and lower maintenance of newer construction. Its setting is unique: the slope into one of Lake Bluff's most extraordinary deep ravines allows for multi-level lawn and garden areas accented by beautiful stone garden walls and blue stone patios. It features a stunning swimming pool as the focal point of the very private back yard. Built for both grand scale entertaining and intimate family living, this 7,418 square foot home features 5+ bedrooms; 7.1 baths; 6 fireplaces; 10-foot ceilings on the first floor and 9-foot ceilings on the second floor; an attached greenhouse; and an attached 4-car garage. An elegant first floor bedroom suite can be a second primary suite, or a lovely guest suite. The Bonus Room on the second floor can be a 6th bedroom. There is also a luxurious finished walkout basement -- with a game area, a huge Rec Room and with a large bar and fireplace, a spacious exercise room, a full bath and multiple storage rooms -- which opens to a patio area overlooking the deep and forested ravine. A significant home like this rarely becomes available in a lifetime. Is this your moment? Seize it now!
